JCPenney's 'Too Pretty For Homework' Shirt Inspires More (PHOTOS)

We have to admit, the kerfuffle over JCPenney's now shelved "I'm Too Pretty For Homework" shirt, inspired us. After all, girls are bombarded with terrible messages almost all of the time, and not just at department stores. There's nothing wrong with being pretty, we just wish it wasn't so often treated as one end of the "pretty or smart" seesaw.

But back to our inspiration. As transparent a faulty message as the JCPenney t-shirt was, we feel it still left a little ambiguity. If the designer really wanted to get the message of looks over substance across, they could have gone with one of these.
